—This paper presents dynamic modeling of an innovative contractible ionic polymer-metal composites (IPMC) actuator with a helical configuration. The helical shaped IPMC actuator is fabricated through the thermal treatment of an IPMC strip, which is helically coiled on a glass rod. This type of a soft actuator can be used to realize not only bending motion(More)
— This paper presents mechanical design process of an industrial and economical SCARA robot, called FUM SCARA, designed by a team of students at the Ferdowsi University of Mashhad, in Iran. SCARA robots are among the most widely used robots in industry due to their inherent rigidity and high accuracy. The design process included, joint design, link design,(More)
The optical behavior of gradient biaxial dielectrics has not been widely explored in the literature due to their complicated nature, but the extra degrees of freedom in the index tensor have the potential of yielding useful optical instruments which are otherwise unachievable. In this work, a design method is described in detail which allows one to combine(More)
